Tap or click steps to mark as complete

  • Bring boiling-water canner, half-full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot, soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain well before filling.
  • Mash bananas thoroughly. Measure exactly 4 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-quart saucepot. Stir lemon juice and fruit protector into prepared fruit in saucepot.
  • Stir pectin into fruit in saucepot. Add butter to reduce foaming, if desired. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in all sugar quickly. Return to full rolling boil and boil exactly 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle quickly into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches; add boiling water if needed. Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 5 minutes. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lid with finger. (If lid springs back, lid is not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.)

    This stuff is exceptional. I am a vendor at a local farmers market and this jam is BY FAR my best seller. I actually make a couple of variations of this. I market one as MONKEY BUTTER as is, I sell a second version which I caramelize the bananas and sugar, adding spices and flavorings, and market it as CARAMELIZED BANANA BUTTER, or BANANAS FOSTER JAM depending on my additions and alterations.

    Thank you for all your reviews! Made three batches tonight - two with the cinnamon/pumpkin pie spice/brown sugar. I made the third batch substituting a small container of blender-whirred blueberries for part of the bananas. It was a total hit! This is a terrific recipe.

    This taste great. Spread on plain white bread taste like banana bread. I've made 2 batches so far. The texture is very thick. I need to get it so it will spread a little easier. The bananas were not overly ripe. I'll have to try very ripe next time.
